    I can remember the time posters galore complained for years that Winker had no power.

    Power is the last tool to develop.

    Yes. I don't mind India and the youngsters getting an occasional day off, but India needs to play a lot this year, to help evaluate
    if he's part of the long term solution or not.
    We don't want to repeat the pattern of the past.. holding on to guys like Reed, Finnegan, Robert Stephenson FOREVER and never making a decision on them. Aquino could be put in this bucket too. There's an opportunity cost (roster spot) for keeping
    these guys on the roster, but never really making a decision on them. The marginal relievers.. ok, that's somewhat defensible, it's not as if they were blocking anyone better.. But India and even Senzel? They need to play the bulk of the time, so there's enough data to make an informed decision on them this offseason. That doesn't necessarily mean the Reds have to decide to cut, trade or keep them, but it's annoying when they keep someone like Aquino or Reed around, don't really play them and just let their value drop down to zero.

    You're right, but you're also taking this far more seriously than I am. I'm mainly thinking about what other fruit can be turned into a deadly weapon.
